**Update 12/03/15 - We now offer monthly supporters option, which has been requested by many of you., see here: http://www.onefootballforum.co.uk/index.php?account/upgrades

We appreciate all contributions. We've always said from the start that we'd fund the site ourselves without grumbling, but if you do want to help, it will be gratefully received.

If you wanted to donate £5/£10/£15:

As a thank you to supporters, the site is completely ad-free for all members who upgrade.

Update 16/08/15
Many of you have asked for a breakdown of the sites running costs, please see below. Full details can be found here; http://www.onefootballforum.co.uk/index.php?threads/monthly-site-costs-breakdown.5102/

Mandatory Costs (Monthly)

Optional Costs We Are Investing In
Facebook/Bing/Google Ads Spend - £140 in the last 40 days.

Rich confirmed on thefootballforum that it's gone for good. Didn't give a reason but said something happened that made them shut it down early.

Seems a real shame that they aren't going to at minimum keep an archived version as read-only.

I agree. They seemed a little annoyed at you and Chris trying to set up a new one though. Which is odd considering they shut it down a few hours after saying that.

Just to be clear, the only reason why anybody knows the public URL of this forum this early is because they closed. The only reasoning behind me being interested in this project was to continue TFF in some way shape or form. None of us would be on here as early as tonight if the board was still switched on.

Just donated. Cheers for creating this forum TB, very much appreciated.

Thanks Jon, we'll be sure to work something out to thank you guys in the near future.

Cheers folks, will look to migrate the site onto a new server within the next couple of days to avoid a problem before it occurs.

If you have any ideas on how we should show appreciation to supporters, just let us know.

Thank god we have somewhere to hang out at least, I started to get withdrawal symptoms!

We simply have to try and make this work, and i'm willing to help out in any way I can. It would be such a shame if we didn't keep this community together.

I'd say keeping it as it was on TFF would be good. An exclusive sub-forum, and have the shoutbox for supporters only.

I'm in the same boat. Happy to donate an amount when the wage packet drops through the door on 26th.

Seems the system isn't automatically upgrading subscribers, just another job to add to the list! Have and will continue to record all of you and manually add your subscriptions, not to worry.

TB,

Just want to say thank you for all your hard work you've done already and will do in the future. Don't worry about how quickly things will be sorted around here. Obviously we all know that we're here at least 2 months early so as long as people know where this site is and communication is done when at all possible then I know we'll be fine. I'll donate as soon as I can.

Good luck all.

Hear fucking hear, Tommy.

Done a bang up job, fellas. I am having issues with my PayPal account at the moment but will be donating as soon as I get it sorted.

Site supporter now showing under usernames, thanks folks, if I've missed anyone, drop me a message.

Will have firmed up plans for the server move after speaking with Saddlerrad tomorrow so you'll be able to see your generosity going to use.

£5 seems a small sum to pay to help get this forum up and running. Thanks again for all the work you've put in so far.
